Ambassador Quest Entrants hold fundraising events throughout the year, of which 50% of the proceeds go towards assisting with running costs of the Oysterfest and the remainder goes towards a not-for-profit organisation or community project of their choice. They form their own committees to assist them in their quest, usually comprised of members of the Ambassadors sponsoring organisation as well as friends and family members, and host functions like quiz nights, auction dinners and fashion shows or hold cake stalls, car washes, maybe publish a book or calendar any activity that will assist them in raising funds!
They are then involved in promoting and presenting the Oysterfest, as well as helping to run competitions and kids activities. Our winning Ambassador will be on hand to sash competition winners across the weekend.
